PRODUCT REVIEW: FortiWeb Cloud WAF-as-a-Service

1218

Today, we are reviewing FortiWeb Cloud WAF-as-a-Service by Fortinet, a Web Application Firewall solution to protect organizations against a broad range of attacks.

FortiWeb Cloud provides effective and efficient protection for web applications and APIs against the broadest range of attacks, including OWASP Top 10 threats, DDoS attacks, malicious bots, and zero-day attacks.

The solution combines a robust WAF-as-a-Service platform that simplifies deployment and eliminates time consuming maintenance tasks with innovated machine learning capabilities that eliminate the need for manual tuning by automatically evolving alongside your specific application, blocking malicious anomalies and non-legitimate users. FortiWeb Cloud’s visual reporting tools provide detailed analyses of attack sources, types, and other elements that provide insights not available with other WAF solutions.

Unlike other Cloud WAFs that offer minimal, signature-based protection, FortiWeb Cloud provides a fully featured WAF that is powered by machine learning to protect against zero-day attacks and other more sophisticated threats – all while eliminating most of the false positives that drive administrative overhead.

Whether you want to use the default security policies or require customizations unique to your application, FortiWeb Cloud gives you the power to deploy with confidence. The platform is easy to deploy so that WAF users can get up and running in minutes while still providing advanced, expert WAF engineers the full control and fine-tuning capabilities they demand.

What makes the Fortinet WAF solution different from other platforms is its exceptional value, providing superior protection with a consumption-based pricing model that delivers transparency to your usage and cost. FortiWeb Cloud is delivered within the same public cloud region as your application, providing improved performance, a simplified regulatory environment, and reduced bandwidth costs.
